Carers urged to slow down
LOCAL carers are invited to connect and unwind over a delicious high-tea style lunch at Lifestreams Church in Como on October 21 between 11am and 1pm.
The City of South Perth’s free Slow Down lunch is open to anyone who is an informal carer of a loved one of any age.
The lunch, which coincides with National Carers Week from October 15 to 21, is an opportunity to recognise and celebrate the outstanding contribution of unpaid carers.
The event will include tips on reducing stress, mindfulness activities, a conversation about the importance of social supports, good food and a good dose of humour to help relax and revive local informal carers.
To attend the free Carers Slow Down lunch, visit the City’s website and RSVP by October 13.
